Which is better, a new domestic car or a second-hand foreign car?
In the Lada lineup in the fall will be a new versatile off-road vehicle – Lada SW Cross on the basis of “Vesta”. Most likely, the price of new items will be about 750 thousand rubles. What alternatives are there in the secondary market?
Competitors in full, these machines can not be called, they are all different in size, class and base price category. Characteristics also diverge, both in terms of engine power and other parameters – there were a lot of all-wheel-drive vehicles in the selection, and Lada’s drive will be front. But versatile off-road vehicles in principle is extremely small. And those that you can buy with an amount of about 750 thousand rubles in your pocket – even less.
Instead of a new “Lada”, you can buy the third-generation Outback, which was released from 2003 to 2009. In this case, the most recent copies will be available. The car is offered with a 2.5-liter engine (165 or 173 hp in conventional versions and 250 in turbocharged) and a 3.0-liter atmospheric engine with a capacity of 245 hp. The drive is exceptionally full.
On good, for the amount of 700 thousand can already look at the fourth generation (2009 – 2013), but this will be a single “dead” cars.

Restyling universal (since 2009) equipped with a 1.8-liter 152-horsepower gasoline engine with MCP, or 2.0-liter 140-horsepower diesel with DSG. When choosing it is necessary to rely on the first option – diesel copies are so rare that in the secondary market are virtually nonexistent. All “Scouts” are offered exclusively with all-wheel drive.
Citroen C5 Cross Tourer
These “off-road” station wagons are on sale just a few pieces. Officially, the Cross Tourer was brought to us in mid-2014, and already in 2016 Citroen stopped supplying C5 to Russia at all. The secondary market is mainly cars of 2010-2012, imported by the owners themselves. No choice – only a 1.6-liter gasoline engine with a capacity of 150 horsepower, front-wheel drive and “automatic”.

Diesel cars can be found on sale (2.0 liter engines with MCP and 3.0-liter engines with AMT) are available, but more than 750 thousand rubles.
Audi A6 Allroad
If you like the Audi brand, it’s better to look at the “off-road” A6 wagon, it appeared earlier, and so the choice is more – it will be easier to find a copy in good condition. For the price of the cars of the year 2006 – 2008, they are the second generation until restyling. The most common version on the secondary market is the 3.2-liter petrol engine with 255 horsepower and ACP. Among these station wagons, it’s easy to find a diesel version – 2.7 liters, 180 horsepower, AKP.
